Dear Strike Families, over the past few weeks, many in our Brigade have been working longer hours and coming back a little dustier than normal. There’s a good reason for that and we want our families to know the incredible mission that we have undertaken.

Our Brigade is currently supporting the Operation Allies Welcome effort at Fort Bliss, providing temporary housing for Afghan Evacuees who have arrived in our nation after a difficult and dangerous path to freedom and safety. We are working with Task Force Bliss (1st Armored Division, the Garrison, 528th Hospital Center, 93rd Military Police, and 1AD Sustainment Brigade, among others) to provide essential services for them while they finalize their immigration process safely. We are following through on America’s commitment to our Afghan allies who have helped us over the past two decades.

It is a big job! We are essentially running a small town complete with medical services, food, laundry, recreation and other daily needs for our guests. While our primary mission is fighting and winning our nation’s ground wars, this amazing team is adapting to the challenge through some great leadership and outstanding professionalism. This is a mission our team can be proud of for the rest of their lives.

We won’t be answering any questions at this time, but if you want to know more about the program we’re supporting, please contact Department of Homeland Security Public Affairs.

If you want to support our Afghan Guests, the Armed Services YMCA El Paso is accepting donations and they’re looking for volunteers to help them sort through those donations. Feel free to look them up on Facebook and find out how you can volunteer!

Just know that our team IS out here making a difference.

All, through the special efforts of some community folks in El Paso, Texas we are preparing to receive a significant donation of clothing for the displaced Afghans that are arriving to U.S. Army Fort Bliss. We know this is late, but if anyone is available to help us unload the truck into our storage area tonight it would be incredibly helpful. Just reach out to us on messenger and we'll give you the details.

Rams let's congratulate our Ram hero of the week SPC Shelley Lee. SPC Lee serves as the administration and operations clerk for Centurion Company. She ensures all correct routing and approval of all administrative actions in the company. Recently SPC Lee demonstrated to be a leader that really cares by receiving, sponsoring, and in-processing four new soldiers and their families. She made sure that they were set up for success with the correct housing, pay, and leave before beginning work as a Centurion. SPC Lee is a leader exemplifying a people first attitude and embodies what it means to be a leader, a Battering Ram, and a Strike Soldier!

"I like to take the initiative and show the new Soldiers that you can be better at your job and as a person everyday."
-SPC Lujan

Rams, let's congratulate our Ram hero of the week, SPC Jose Lujan. SPC Lujan comes from California and is a 25U serving as the retransmisssion team leader for the HQ platoon of the Centurion Company. He excels as a leader and has also been trusted with the duty of being the company's primary armorer. SPC Lujan is always motivated and he demonstrated this by volunteering to instruct and conduct OE-254 antenna drills for the company's leaders time training. He also was a big part on having all Centurions qualify on the M4 and M249 weapon systems by conducting preliminary marksmanship instruction and leading 7 centurions through the M249 qualification tables. SPC Lujan, we thank you for being a proud Ram and a great leader!

The Brigade Commander and Command Sergeant Major would like to put out the BDE's stance and response to the current COVID-situation so there is no confusion.

Fort Bliss is currently running low on vaccinations, but that shouldn't stop anyone from getting vaccinated. Should a Soldier or a family member wish to get vaccinated, they can do so off-post for free. If vaccinated, please bring your vaccination card to your unit Medics to ensure that it is tracked accordingly.

If you wish to read up on 1st Armored Division's "Eighth Amended Work Safe, Live Safe" guidance, we shared it last week.

Today, TF RAMS held our own version of March Madness, which included tug-of-war, horse shoes, and a whole lot of BBQ. Awards were also given out to soldiers that went above and beyond during the deployment overseas. We are grateful for all the hard work everyone on the #BatteringRams family has put in throughout the deployment and enjoyed the day to spend time with one another and build espirit de corps.

COVID 19 UPDATE:
• VACCINES OPEN and AVAILABLE FOR ALL BENEFICIARIES!!!!
Directions to sign up for an appointment are below....
WBAMC will be making COVID-19 vaccines available to all beneficiaries 16 years of age and over, including those with no underlying health conditions, beginning Friday, March 5th. You can schedule an appointment by going to the WBAMC website.
*Be aware that WBAMC has recently migrated to the new DHA website platform so if you go to the old site, be sure to click on the link to the new location: https://william-beaumont.tricare.mil/?fbclid=IwAR372wwdjnl0G4b7S7nRcb5wl7CYKB1woH4_BHAmBZgByUKt6X6rXnCeROw
Then click on the WBAMC COVID-19 Information link and scroll down to the link for COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATION AND SCHEDULING.
From there, scroll down to the option to schedule Vaccine appointments at either the Stayton Theatre site or the Stout Gym site, and read the info and click on “NEXT” at the bottom. It will ask that you indicate whether it is for your initial or follow-up dose (to be effective the vaccine requires two doses about 3 weeks apart). From there pick your date/time (March 5 or later). And follow the prompts. (Be sure to download, print, and fill out DD Form 2870 and DHA 207 and take them along with your military ID to your appointment).
You can then go back in at any time and follow the same process to schedule your follow-up dose for three weeks after your initial dose.

Dr. Scholl’s Steps Up To Raise $3 Million For Support Our Troops® Thank you for your service and for keeping all of us here at home safe. Here’s a news item about what folks at home are doing for you that will make your day! Bayer U.S. is donating $1 to SupportOurTroops.Org for each pair of Dr. Scholl’s insoles/inserts sold in Walmart stores nationwide in July, with a goal of $3 million for active-duty military and their families this year. This is good news to share with family and friends. Please do not as a service member or unit endorse Bayer or Dr. Scholl’s. Family and friends can do as they like. Throughout July, Americans can show their patriotism in every Walmart store with a purchase of Dr. Scholl’s insoles. For every pair of Dr. Scholl’s insoles of $10 or more sold in Walmart stores during the month of July, Bayer HealthCare will donate $1 to SupportOurTroops.Org, a nationwide 501(c)(3) organization. The funds raised by Bayer HealthCare will help Support Our Troops keep soldiers connected to their family, home and country by satellite from remote desert and island locations, move cargo containers downrange to sustain soldier morale and mission effectiveness, provide food assistance to overseas military children and spouses, and provide stability and continuity for overseas military youth. Family and friends of service members can encourage Bayer’s effort by: (1) sharing this article with other groups/pages, and (2) posting a big thank you! to Bayer and Dr. Scholl’s on their pages for their patriotism in supporting America’s troops. Maybe take a photo in front the display at a Walmart for that post. https://www.facebook.com/DrScholls https://www.facebook.com/BayerUnitedStates “America’s troops are actually our neighbors – those among us who have stepped up to take their turn protecting all of us. And widespread civilian support is critical to mission success and the morale and well-being of America’s troops and their families,” said Martin C. Boire, of Support Our Troops. “On their behalf I want to thank Dr. Scholl’s for stepping up with a great way for Americans to show their support and deliver tangible support to their soldiers.”
